Title: Your Favorite Jedi?
Post by: Brian on July 25, 2006, 01:38 PM
After seeing a number of different characters and species represented in the Jedi Order throughout the prequel trilogy, are there any that stand out to you personally as your favorite?  Of course we have the "big guns" of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Mace Windu - are there any others that are favorites of yours?

Personally, there are a number of neat designs and characters, but there are a few that stand out to me.  Of course, the well known ones:

Luke Skywalker (if we're talking OT too - my favorite)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (maybe my favorite character of the PT)
Yoda (although it was different, seeing him with a lightsaber for the first time gave me chills)
Mace Windu (Sam Jackson is just cool, and the character was good as well)
Anakin Skywalker (if you consider him Jedi - or Sith)

As far as background Jedi, some of my favorites would be:

Plo Koon
Kit Fisto
Coleman Trebor
Pablo Jill
Aayla Secura
Shaak Ti
Roron Corobb - "Hammerhead" Jedi from Clone Wars (I wouldn't mind seeing a "realistic" figure of this in the basic line)
Saesee Tiin
Ki Adi Mundi

Just interesting looks from the various alien Jedis, and I can't think of any in particular I didn't like.  Kit Fisto and Plo Koon would probably be a couple of my favorites overall, but I like pretty much all of them.

Well...my computer would crash every time I left Taris, so I never got to see Bastilla get over being a piss ant. She isn't on my list.

Loved:

Korto Vos
Aayla Secura
Tholme
Plo Koon
Saesae Tiin


God, there are so many, but that's the creme de la creme for me

Obi-Wan Kenobi.

If you read the ROTS novel, there's a point where Mace Windu tells him that he only mastered a single light saber style because he has no particular weakness.  Yoda had a style due to compensate for his stature and Mace had a certain style to compensate for some sort of inner darkness, but Obi-Wan had no such flaw.

In essence, Obi-Wan was the perfect Jedi.

Obi-Wan is my favorite Jedi also.  Although it could be argued that he was far from perfect.  His flaw was his attachment to Anakin  -- his love for Anakin blinded him.  While not necessarily a bad character trait, we know the Jedi's view on attachment.......

Remember what Bindo said to Revan

"Love doesn't lead to the dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled, but passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that's what they should teach you to beware, but love itself will save, not condemn you."
Jolee Bindo to Revan when discussing love.

Pablo Jill's such an awesome design...  The upside down head, the goofy walk...  I wish he had a better figure really, but he's up there for my favorite.  Kit Fisto's there too though, despite his somewhat similar looks to a Twi'Lek.  Kit's a pretty bitchin' Jedi though, and too bad he and 2 others went out like such punks in E3, as they did.  :(

Yoda and Obi Wan are definitely tops for me (of course, there aren't many others that we get to learn a lot about).

He was the first one in the jedi group in AOTC, so yeah he's pretty bitchin' :P. Atleast he put up a little fight in ROTS before Palps chops him.

eh, not really. i think the only thing in star wars that statement applies to are gungans and ewoks.

Don't worry I was trying to get his goat because he had a clone for his avatar .

I kind of like Qui-Gon as well. He came very close to being the prequels only fully realized character.

   Ever since I got the Phantom Menace Visual Dictionary back when I was seven years old, I've always liked Plo Koon. I thought he was awesome looking with his mask and weird skin. I liked him even more when Jedi Power Battles came out, and he was one of only several Power of the Jedi figures that I bought.
   When the Attack of the Clones toys came out, I was so excited to have Plo Koon be the fourth figure that I got from that line. I was psyched to see him in the movie wielding a lightsaber. (Alright, it was only for two seconds, but it was still cool)
   I was kind of disappointed to see Koon die in Revenge of the Sith. I would've loved to have seen him fight back, or maybe even survive Order 66. I think the Plo Koon had a very unique design for an alien, and I would love to see a novel or a comic with him as a main character. I've always felt that he hasn't gotten as much love as some of the other Jedi Council Members (i.e. Shaak Ti, Ki Adi Mundi, Saesee Tiin)

Hardy har har.
Well still, my favorite Jedi would have to be...Quinlan Vos, he seems pretty cool.
Aside from him, Anakin. I know Hayden didnt do a good job with the character but he was cool.

1ST: Anakin Skywalker (So dang cool with that bad ass attitude)
2ND: Yoda (My Second Favorite He is)
3RD: General Grievous ( He has four dang lightsabers with four arms for god's sake!!!)

Worst: Obi-Won (I dislike his heroic attitude, the dark side is the best!)

If you didn't get the hint, I like the way he talks, so bad grammar! Can you tell me the song of the final battle between Anakin and Obi-Won, plus Yoda and Sidoues? I love that background music, it's so inspiring!

Raoran Corob and any goofy alien Jedi.

They are so ridiculous its great. Just imagine a group of them fighting the noises of what would be heard with gutteral alien voice. I want to see a Kubaz Jedi.

Aayla Secura would be my favorite
now if only they would do a super articulated figure of her
i would be happy

Yoda
Obi-Wan
Qui-Gon

   These names all capture the Mentor's Spirit. They are wise teachers that show that good comes from helping others. Heroic and self sacrificing, they are, for the greater good.

   If we delve into the EU comics I would have to mention Zayne, Cade, Dass Jennir, Wolf Sazen, Quinlan Vos and Aayla Secura. All of them have been enlightening on the many different perspectives a Jedi can have.

Kit Fisto, Plo Koon, Roron Corobb, and Shaak Ti, to pick a few. I hope Fisto and Koon have larger roles in the new movie. They did pop up in the trailer, so who knows? :)

Plo Koon's pretty cool. Even Darth Maul considered him to be an impressive Jedi Knight of his time, and we all know how much Maul hates the Jedi...

Too bad Plo died a pretty quick death.  :'( Would have been cool to see him go after Vader

Post by: JediJman on August 11, 2009, 11:11 PM
I can't think of anyone I like better than Kit Fisto.  Plo Koon, Aayla, and Coleman Trebor would be up there as well. 

Outside of the flicks, Mara Jade, Ganner, Corran Horn, and Saba Sebatyne would be my faves.  Saba in particular is always a character I look forward to reading more about between her hunting skills and sometimes comical cultural differences from humans.
